Buttery angel hair pasta with fresh and vibrant flavors of lemon, garlic and rosemary is a satisfying side dish or vegetarian main course.
The fresh and vibrant flavors of butter, lemon, fresh rosemary and garlic come together into something spectacular in this pasta dish! I have the biggest rosemary bush growing right now and always try to cook with it when I can.
My mama gave the the rosemary bush in a huge pot that sits beside my side porch. Hmmmm… what ELSE can I do with rosemary?! I love it! I ate this with delicious pork tenderloin that I grilled today for another post (recipe coming very soon!). But I could also eat this as a meal on its own for sure!
The kitchen still has the aromatics of rosemary, lemon and garlic and smells sooooo good!
This is certainly a quick and easy dish if you’re pushed for time. If you love rosemary, lemon, garlic and buttery pasta as much as I do, this recipe is sure to be a winner. Enjoy!Print

I thought it looked to good so I halved the recipe to make a smaller portion. I found the flavor to be so overpowering it didn’t taste good. However that could be my personal preference, just thought someone might like to know that it is a really really strong flavor.
Made it tonight with half the Rosemary required, picked fresh from our garden. Tasted perfect.
I love angel hair pasta! This is a great way to cook pasta! Beautiful pictures!! Love the combination of lemon zest and butter!
